Introducing #9, from the Maroon team, BRADY CHIN!

After two rained out weekend's, Brady's formal athletic career began with his first soccer game at 8:15am ET, April 24. You might want to jot that down as the answer to a Brady Chin trivia question that reporters may bring up in about 18 years when he is being drafted by a professional sports team.

Anyway, it wasn't much of a game - as one might expect from 3 year-old soccer. As expected, it took Brady awhile to get acquainted to the environment and coaches, as these video's will show. However, by the end of the day he was kicking the ball past the other team and sprinting downfield to chase it.

And he was the only kid to crash into the other team's best player - which admittedly made me smile. All in all, I think he had fun. Two games next weekend to make up for one of the rainouts, so hopefully we have good weather again.

Brady thinking "this is not as much fun as American football. Maybe I should just tackle that kid that keeps scoring against us." Juice boxes at the end of the game put a smile on everyone's face. :)

Mia's 2nd Birthday

Last weekend marked Mia's second birthday which we celebrated with a family dinner and homemade, allergy-free cupcakes and soy ice cream. Fun was had by all, especially the birtday girl and her brother.

The Lost Easter Video

I messed around with youtube and cannot figure out why it loads the other video as a black screen and this one fine. However, here's a different version of Easter Sunday fun.

Spring is here

Sorry for the technical difficulties on the Easter video. For some reason youtube is not showing the video. I'll have to troubleshoot that. Too bad, it was a good video.

Anyway, today we are enjoying some very nice spring weather and the kids are having fun outside.

Easter 2010

Easter Eve started with Brady coloring eggs. This is the first time I've colored eggs since I was a kid, so next year I will be more prepared, but all and all, not bad. Brady had fun.
